YUM!

Nutritious fact: Broccoli is very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Protein, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Thiamin, Riboflavin, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Selenium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Folate, Potassium, and Manganese.

Ingredients:

  • 2 heads of broccoli (1.5 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of crushed hot pepper (optional)
  • 1.5 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of apple vinegar

Directions:

  1. Thoroughly wash the broccoli in cold water to remove any dirt.
  2. Cut off the tough tip of the stem of each head of broccoli, then cut the heads lengthwise along the individual florets toward the steam and about 4 inch long.
  3. Place the broccoli trees into a pot and add 1/4 cup of water. Bring to a boil with the lid closed for 10 minutes over medium high heat.
  4. Open the lid, drain, and let it cool down for a few minutes.
  5. Sauce: combine the olive oil, salt, garlic, dried & crushed chili pepper, ground black pepper, and apple vinegar in a large mixing bowl.
  6. Add the broccoli to the sauce and mix it all together.
  7. Serve warm or cold!
